Did you know the song was about JFK's daughter?

Neil Diamond has famously said that it wasn’t about JFK’s daughter, it was in fact about his wife at the time - but he said the name in the title of the song had to be three syllables to work so he temporarily changed his wife’s name from ‘Marsha’ to ‘Caroline’ to make the song work - rock n roll eh?!

Rock n Roll indeed. I only heard about JFK's daughter recently on TV as well!

At least the TV show didn't say anything about the classic Quo track of similar name!

And now I'm really confused....or maybe Neil is.

I don’t care what people sing, long as it’s not “stand up if you hate the Gas”. We should have songs about City, not minnows from Horfield. 

Oh come on, surely "Shoes off if you hate the Gas" at the last home match was a candidate for Champagne Moment of the Season? 🤣

What about.

It's a long way to Bristol City, it's a long way to go. It's a long way to Bristol City to the greatest team I know. Goodbye Bristol rovers, farewell Cardiff too. It's a long long way to Bristol City but we are here with you.

Sing to the tube if it's a long way to tipperary, would probably get the older fans joining in aswell.

We already have an anthem and the op dissed it in his opening sentence. It just isn't sung often or loud enough.

BAAAARRRISSSSTOLLLLLL.....as mentioned earlier and 'We are the boys from the West Country' both popular have fallen by the wayside.

Does anyone one remember in the old EE bouncing up and down to “knees up mother brown?”  I’m going back at least 30-40 odd years.

Up the table we must go, ee ey ee ey ee ey oh

We all have different memories, but mine was:

‘When we get promotion,

This is what we’ll sing,

We all love you, We all love you,

Galley is our King.’

Still, whatever floats your boat.

I remember that version as well. It’s such a catching tune that you could make up lots of different versions.

Must admit the songs down Ashton Gate for the last few seasons have been cr*p, in the seventies the good old East End sang from start to finish even when we were losing, come on everyone get it sorted, come on you reds is a bit boring now, time to invent something a bit better. There was always songs for the various players years ago, there's a few now but not many, most of the away fans seem to all have many different songs for their players, team or club, we seem a bit lacking in this respect!

It’s largely because us former EE ‘boys’ aren’t boys anymore. We’ve all grown up and matured and what thrilled and excited us 40+ years ago no longer has the same impact.

Plus…the EE was a perfect place to congregate and join the City ‘family’ and it generated a terrific atmosphere. However.. the bogs were absolutely disgusting, the view was shallow and piss poor which meant actually watching the game almost impossible but it wasn’t a big deal back then. It was the atmosphere that mattered.

Seems ageist  I know but without the EE generating any kind of atmosphere these days is a real struggle these days. How time changes.

They really didn’t.

This is like the “it never rained when I was at school” memory we all have.

It didn’t happen.
